    I have 4 N. ventricosa that I grow in a south facing bay window along with my other CPs. This summer I'm going to see if I can move them outside.

    This sounds just too familiar. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] It was only a few weeks ago when I moved my plants to the windowsill where they get blasted with sunlight over ten hours a day. Only then they started pitchering like mad, even the tiny offshoots are already sending out tiny pitchers. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] The nep.gracilis in my terrarium (given to me by Cindy), also produced four pitchers almost "immediately" after I put them in my terrarium with 72 watts lighting. Before all my neps were growing small, thin and narrow leaves with long tendrils, no doubt, but then the tendrils don't form into baby pitchers. So I had a forest of pitchers, each with about twenty pitcherless leaves. Then I decided to attach a white ledge to my window sill, and in about a week, one atala produced a two inch deep red pitcher. (so cute!)

    Glad to have someone to share my problem, so that I know I'm not alone in this world of growing where something always seems to go wrong...(no need to get all philosophical now) [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]
    (actually its a good thing its not just me otherwise I would be considerably worried [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] )

    Phew!

    i just did some moving around with my neps my sanguinea i left in its spot i guess i will wait till it goes outside and here the humidity is almost always 100 % out so they pitcher like crazy. As for my truncata, mirabilis and alata i found a plastic container that i am using as a growing chamber and my ventricosa is happy in its terrarium and moved my mirabilis x khasiana to my south window where imidietely it started growing new leaves at least . Will update on this info
